I don't want to step on anyone's toes - those who have already provided answers - but I want to give you the clearest and most repeatable method of repentance.

Come to know the full expression of the Gospel. Become enraptured with the person of Jesus, who is the exhibits the full image and character of God.

If you try to tiptoe around sin in appeasement of some unknown, wrathful God, you will fall....repeatedly. However, if you learn who the Father is through the Son, you will learn to effortlessly obey the commands of God out of love, not fear.

I can read all that that Jesus says to, for example, not look with lust or to become angry. And my reverence for His word can continuously remain unchallenged. However, if I don't abide in His LOVE, then I will fall, time and time again.

Not to boast in anything other than in the Spirit of God, but I've recently become fully exposed to what I believe the ultimate "good news" is, and I have not even so much as been tempted to sin, despite it being a nearly constant force in my life prior.

Do you know what the Gospel is? There are hints in your words that possibly betray that you don't (and that's okay, it look me 5 years of CONSTANT study before I could claim that I do).


You know the "full expression" of the Gospel, you effortlessly obey God's word, your reverence for His word remains unchallenged, and you aren't even tempted by sin?

Aren't these claims about yourself nearly heretical? Everyone sins. Everyone is tempted. And you're boasting.

It is not boasting in myself. I was clear in that this is God's work, not mine.

But this is the gospel. The orthodox Christian claim is that Jesus is the Lamb of God who takes away (the Greek word is "lifts," as in "lifting the curse") the sin of the world.

I am not claiming perfection for myself, but what I am offering is REAL help. I struggle with sin ALOT, but when I fully embrace the Gospel, there is nothing remaining within that desires for sin, because I have been conditioned to seek only after God.

This is the witness of the apostles. It's not about "trying really hard" to not sin; it's about becoming so full of the Spirit of God that the desire for earthly drunkenness no longer has a vessel.

It's certainly not heretical.

Also, another response for emphasis.

Everyone sins, but God does not. If we become indwelt by the Spirit of God, then we cannot sin.

"Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin."

"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."

I struggle with sin ALOT


It’s “a lot”. One of the worst sins is writing “alot”!

Everyone sins


So you do sin. Glad we cleared that up, Mr. Holy Vessel.

He said he doesn't even struggle with sin, which prompted my response, and he defends that position by saying he struggles with sin...

Wait, what? Wouldn't that mean that every Christian ever is actually NOT a Christian, since everyone sins? O_O

I remember when YHWH_Saves first started posting here he claimed to be sinless. I was worried the second coming of Jesus had begun!!

Is lying still a sin if you've done it for so long you've convinced yourself it's true?
